Ayahuasca in Colombia

7 Days

The Ayahuasca in Colombia retreat, located in Fredonia, Colombia, offers fixed price retreats for groups of between one (1) and five (5) people, as we know a large group retreat isn’t necessarily for everyone. The retreat was founded by Sam Believ, who started drinking Ayahuasca to get help recover from depression and it was on one of his journeys, the medicine showed him that he had to work with it, helping others, so he started the retreat.

According to Believ, “Psychedelics are natural for humans and every culture used to have their own. Western society lost theirs, and with it, their roots, this is why our society is like headless chicken. Psychedelics offer a connection to earth, to God and different ways to look at things…not to mention their healing capacity. Psychedelics seem to be the only way out of the mental health crisis we are in.”


Located a 60 to 90 minute drive south of Medellin, through the rolling green hills close to El Cinco, Antioquia. The elevated finca sits on 5 hectares of land, providing an expansive view of the green mountainous valley below.
